Yeah, this is what I am expecting as well but I am still going to try. I have always had the best luck with guest services at their building in Disney Springs. If you are still there, you may want to try again since you can upgrade at anytime during your valid 9-day window. I would also mention you have heard renewals were allowed previously....again I wont be there until after they are selling them again so I doubt my "renewal" persuasion will work, but for you since they don't sell them currently and they have offered it to others, they should do something for you to allow you to use your 9-day pass towards a pass. Just unfortunate timing for you and their recent announcement.I attempted to upgrade my 9-day park hopper at guest services in Magic Kingdom yesterday to a recovery AP and was denied. The Cast Member said they were holding on recovery AP sales since the announcement that they were coming back.
